Why It Matters

We do so much more than build beautiful gardens. We make our clients’ (and our designers’) dreams reality in a way that works for the long term resilience of Los Angeles. Here are things you’ll come to value about our construction services:

Clear Communication
We will communicate with you throughout the construction process. You will know when we will be onsite and what to expect as your landscape unfolds. If you have requests or curiosities along the way, we want to know, and we’ll work to ensure you get what you need. We’ll walk you through your completed garden, providing tips for care and instruction on all systems installed.

Horticulturists and Craftspeople
Our designers intend to wrap you in a work of art, and it is our skilled construction team that brings it to life. A plant’s long term success begins at installation, and our team members gain still-rare knowledge of how to facilitate the long term success of California native plants. Similarly, our masons take great pride in building high quality, beautiful walks, patios, drives, and walls that will endure.

Dedication to Sustainability
While not all our gardens go through the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED or SITEs certification processes, these standards inform everything we do. Where we can reclaim materials onsite or source from local vendors we do. We have the unusual know-how to build features for water positivity and energy-saving heat island reduction.

Operational Excellence
Your designer will keep us in the loop as they are drawing up the blueprints of your dreams. We become familiar with your site along the way, providing construction and engineering expertise to ensure the feasibility of the design. This coordination amplifies our efficacy and means once we are building your landscape, we move smoothly from start to finish.

Peace of Mind

At the end of each day and at the end of your project we aim for your peace of mind and your joy!
